Tofino Shorebird Festival

Friday, May 1st, 2009 - Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

The combination of expansive mudflats and long sandy beaches create an ideal habitat for these migratory shorebirds. Thousands of shorebirds stop here to feed and rest – some for just three days – as they make their impressive journey from South and Central America northward to their Arctic breeding grounds. The Tofino Shorebird Festival is a weekend of walks, talks, guided birding and more.

Tofino is just a few hours from everything including Port Tofino, Victoria, and of course Nanaimo, BC
